I continue having a blast listening to the remasters of the Duke stuff with
bonus tracks. Love the packaging but I'm inpatiently waiting for the
"Skylarking" and other remasters. What's up? Anyone know?

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (http://www.myspace.com/xtcfans),
Andy takes a look back at the guitar playing on Drums and Wires, Black
Sea and English Settlement. The song of the week is "Sgt. Rock (Is
Going to Help Me)," which even *he* -- no fan of the song -- admits
has "a really good groove."

If you want to know why Andy originally chose his trusty Ibanez Artist
guitar, or how the band used to get people to scream idiotic things at
their shows, check out the XTCfans blog site at
http://blogs.myspace.com/xtcfans.

If I could only be tough like him
then I could win my own small battle of the sexes...

Hi people,

I reviewed Jen Olive's Warm Robot for local entertainment guide, The List.

You can see it here:

There are no stars online, but I have it four out of five in print.

The Chicago Sun Times has a new music critic. In his first column, he
discusses Andy's advice on listening to music:

XTC TRIBUTE BAND IN SWINDON JUNE 11

AT THE FURNACE, 73 COMMERCIAL ROAD, SWINDON, TEL 01793 534238
please pass this info on to as many as possible....

FOSSIL FOOLS
Live XTC Tribute
Support THE FROSTED TEACAKES PLUS AHA SHAKE HEARTBREAK
Tickets #6 Advance
Doors 7.30pm
Tickets avaiable from The Rolleston, Swin City, Blue Banana Swindon, Rock n
Roll Music, Swindon Info Centre and www.wegottickets.com

Who are the fools?
Dan - Keyboard, Guitar & Vocal
Ed - Vocal & Guitar
Matt - Bass
Terry - Drums

Following in the tradition of the X-sTatiC and the Fuzzy Warblers, we think
that XTC songs should be played live.

From 2002 to 2005, Ed was a member of X-sTatiC, mainly playing bass and
singing a bit. From 2004, Terry has played drums for the Fuzzy Warblers. In
2007, Ed joined the Fuzzy Warblers, mainly playing guitar and singing a bit
more.

Whilst the Fuzzies will continue to delve into the obscure corners of XTC,
Ed & Terry share a dream of playing the sort of XTC songs that lots of
people like to hear. Ed gets to sing a bit more, but Dan (not X-sTatiC Dan)
also gets to sing and Matt adds the sort of Bass playing that Ed could never
do.
